Hi, I really enjoy my cwds! I bought one for my son, who promptly lost interest. I have had Charlize for three and a half years now, since she was a hatchling. I also have had my two big beautiful boyz for over a year now; they will be turning three on Mothers Day. Lastly, I have 3 hatchlings, and two eggs scheduled to hatch next week. Guess I got hooked, lol!

You have the right idea about the enclosure. A 50 gal tank for starters will last about a year I guess. Gives you time to start something more vertical. You can even convert furniture, like dressers and cabinets, into beautiful vivs.

I change the water daily - you will probably end up with a pond in the larger viv, with a filter. That may end up being changed weekly, if you scoop the big stuff daily. I suppose it does smell a bit when I clean out the water, but not so much.

My viv, I clean up fairly regularly, but I only deep clean it every month or so. WDs are pretty clean. They poop in the water, so if you keep the water clean and keep the food items cleaned up, there is not so much to clean.

Your biggest concern with a cwd would be providing consistent temps, lighting and humidity as well as a good diet with supplements. Also, plan on having some cash put away for any necessary vet visits.

Hope this helps.
